Immaculata moves to Guardian Angels campus on Preston

Immaculata Classical Academy, an independent Catholic school, has moved to 6010 Preston Highway, the former Pitt Academy building.

Immaculata was formerly located in the former St. Barnabas School building on Hikes Lane.

Justin Fout, Immaculata’s principal, said its new location on Preston has allowed them to add two more classrooms. The school now has 16 classrooms for its 175 students, some of whom have special needs. The location also has more green space, “enough for two soccer fields,” said Fout.

Fout noted that the school is now centrally located and more accessible to families in the South End.

“Staying centrally located is important to families,” he said.

Work to prepare the building before school starts Sept. 6 is ongoing, but thanks to parishioners of Guardian Angels Church, who donated their time, the building now has new tile floors and freshly painted walls.

Father Jeffrey Leger, pastor of Guardian Angels, and parishioners have been welcoming, Fout added. Students at Immaculata will attend a weekly Mass at Guardian Angels.

Archbishop Joseph E. Kurtz will bless the school’s new building and celebrate the first school Mass at 2 p.m. on Sept. 7 at Guardian Angels, 6000 Preston Highway.
